What is an eating disorder?
According to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), an eating disorder is an illness that causes serious disturbances to your everyday diet, such as eating extremely small amounts of food or severely overeating. Eating disorders generally fall into one of three categories, Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, or Binge Eating, also referred to as food addiction. However, those who suffer from eating disorders often do not easily fall into only one of these three categories. They will sometimes exhibit a combination of symptoms of any or all of the three.
